is a weekly fusion social dance that happens every Sunday at Academie Duello. Lessons run from 7:30-8:30, followed by social dancing until 11:30. Music is a mixture of genres, provided by an array of talented DJs who know how to blend together different styles and keep you dancing late into the evening.
WHAT'S FUSION DANCING?
Fusion dancing derives its name from the intermingling of social dance styles and genres. This boundary defying partnered dance allows the dancers the freedom to express their personal styling, while still respecting the fundamental principals of partner dance (e.g. weight shifting, tone, compression/stretching). While many fusion dancers have extensive backgrounds in one or many styles, others chose to learn fusion as their first and only style of dance.
Our local fusion scene has heavy blues and lindy hop influences, but the dance is ever-evolving and growing as more dancers join it! For more information, check out vanblues.com
DO I NEED A DANCE PARTNER?
No partner necessary! This is a social dance, so we all dance with each other during the lesson and the evening.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? HOW DO I SIGN UP?
Coalescence is run on a sliding scale, $8-$20. Suggested donation for attending the lesson and the social is $15 (each night). Lesson cost is included in attendance cost, so just pay at the door when you arrive.
Doors open each night at 7:15, and we'll start at 7:30 sharp! Look forward to seeing you there.
